Road Safety

Driving anywhere in the world can be hazardous. Keeping safe is essential. Yet some people take foolish risks or develop bad driving habits without realising. Are you aware of the very basics of driving safety? I will have to test you for the road rules of New Zealand as this is where I live. However there are some common things that anyone should take note of. Now I am going to include in here pedestrian safety as well and how to be safe around train stations as well.
